Culture? introducing Mercedes Grosso...

..Today I am featureing the capes of Mercedes Grosso. Thed reason why it is a fashion feature is three things; the first is: the capes looks great, the second thing is: the promo-pictures are very cool and strange, and the all need some christmas present tips. Mercedes has answered some questions about her work, so keep on reading. Here it is, your daily shot at art with Mercedes Grosso:
